Charity Contributions

Your participation in the Lexington Medical Center Heart & Sole Women’s Five Miler not only helps us create greater awareness about heart disease and its impact on women, but it also helps us save lives.

In the past, funds from this event allowed us to donate numerous Automated External Defibrillators to organizations throughout the community.  Today, we provide complimentary entries for Heart & Sole to a targeted group of women in the community who are at risk for heart disease and unable to afford the entry fee.
We also use a portion of the proceeds to provide cardiac rehabilitation to women who can’t afford it. .

In addition, through the generous donations of our runners, we provide more than 600 pairs of shoes every year to charities that serve needy people in the Midlands.
